Festivals Extras: Robert Boyd’s New South Festival Photos

Robert Boyd attended the New South Festival in Austin over this last weekend. This is what he saw.

I'll write short descriptions for the photos according to how they've been labeled.

I asked Robert Boyd to comment more generally, in that his pictures made it look like the audience was smaller than what I'd heard it was. He responded:
"It looks sparse in the pictures partly because the tables were spread out along walkways in this expansive grounds of the French Legation Museum. All the lawns in between were empty. It was an unusual set-up. And when I took photos, I made an effort to wait until they weren't crowded, so that probably contributes to the look of light crowds.

"To me, if felt pretty busy based on the fact it often took me a while to get to the tables to look at the goods -- too many people in front of me. But it was a small show in terms of the number of exhibitors (50 according to the program). And I'm going to guess that few visitors stayed the whole time (to hear all the panel discussions and stuff). I stayed a couple of hours -- long enough to hear the Josh Simmons panel and wander through all the booths, and I was melting by the end."
